Introduction

Good evening. I am a 22 year old that just finished up school. My next chapter in life is hopefully the 18X route. I currently have a mentor who is a retired X-ray, but I am always looking for more sources of information. I know this site will provide that. I enjoy reading, the outdoors, and exercising. I hope to learn a lot.

Kevinmick Intro

I am currently an Engineer Officer in 2BCT, 101ABN. Graduate of Syracuse University circa 2014. Have spent hours reading the stories and insights of the QPs on this site, thank you for all of it. I have been given the once in a career opportunity to attend SFAS in October of this year. Training harder every day.

Introduction

Hello everyone, 22 year old here about to finish up my bachelor's. I've been working as an emergency room scribe for the past 3 years with the aspirations of becoming a physician. I have worked with a PA and Physician who were both Silent Professionals and admire their stories. Thank you all for everything that you do.

I'm a former Ranger (2/75) that got out in 2012. Got a computer science degree, gave 'normal life' through software development a chance and have been mostly entirely disillusioned the day I started working again 1.5 years ago. I found this forum years ago when I was weighing trying out for Group versus going to college, and return to better inform me of the things I need to do in order to succeed. Thank you for the opportunity and advice.

Smile Introduction

My name is Matt. I am 33 years old and I served 12 years in the Army. Joined about a month after 9/11. I started in logistics, was a medic for a few years and ended my career as a CBRN soldier. Three tours, twice to Iraq and once to Afghanistan.

Best part of my career was getting to train/work with a group of guys from 5th Group during my second tour in Iraq. They offered to help train up me and my team in preparation for our mission of training Iraqi military. By far the best training/mentorship and professionalism I have ever experienced in my life was from the Quiet Professionals!

Got out in March 2013 and have done just about everything since then. Construction, retail, even Starbucks. Currently working in a unique security/ems position at my local zoological park. It is as cool and as boring as it sounds.

I am married with a daughter and in my spare time I am pretty much doing anything that gets me outdoors and moving.

Been a member of the forum for years and have never introduced myself.

Thanks for having me.

I am not sure if I have posted before, its been years since I was on this site, over 10 years I think.

Always wanted SF, not the tab, the mission. Turned 20 at basic, just in time to go to selection, but didn't make the cut. Was told to come back later. Went EOD, deployed to Iraq, then got out to go to school and get married.

Now I'm dying for another go, though the Army doesn't seem to keen on PS ATM.

28 yrs old, two daughters, and I am Reformed. Also, love the forum.

Introduction

Hello, First off I’d like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to the brave souls that hold the line and to the heroes that ran into the fire zealously and paid the ultimate price for their team and the freedoms that we still have today.

I am a 24 year old from Illinois stationed in Fort Bragg. I’ve aspired to be in SOF since I was a kid and came to the conclusion that The Green Berets is what I was going to work towards 3 years ago right before I enlisted. After many setbacks and obstacles, I finally have a Selection report date on August 30th 2017.

I am a husband, and a father of a 14 month old boy. In my free time I read, ruck, run, swim, lift, eat, and sleep, with an emphasis on becoming who I need to be to get to and through Selection.

I’ve been reading this forum daily for about a year and felt obligated to become a member, introduce myself, and thank all of the PS administrators and moderators who professionally share their invaluable insight.

Take care, and again, thank you very much. God bless you all!

My name is Jake im 24 years old. I've been looking into the military for some time now and have decided to go in with an 18X contract. SF seems to be the best fit for what I want to do to be able to serve my country. Glad to have found this website the info i have been reading through on this forum is invaluable.
